2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 330 ml, bought in Italy and drunk at Parga, Greece. ABV 4.8%. Poured into a lager glass.
Golden yellow body, a bit more than a finger of white, soapy head , with low to average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of malts and wet cornflakes.Not too insulting but it could be better.
Taste is sweet and malty but thankfully the corn is not so obvious, only a bit on the aftertaste.A light bitterness appears but leaves the mouth straight away.
Thin body, average carbonation. Fairly dry on the palate.
Overall, they could do better for an anniversary beer.

Clear golden yellow, medium white head. Slightly sour malty nose with a hint of hops. Taste is some more slightly sour hops, vague sweetness, mild industrial hops in the finish, Light body, medium carbonation, oily palate. Not offensive, but extremely nondescript.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Uninspired pour results in a sparkling gold beer that is headless. Salty crackers and kelp dominate the nose with a hint of blackwood honey, apricot and lavender. Undeniably buttery in the mouth and slick in mouthfeel. Very light bodied and a little harsh in carbonation. Salty crackers and husky grain; metallic in the rear with a weedy hop finish. Not the worst, but not too good either. (33cL, BB 25/08/13, The Beer Store Morley)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear golden coloured body with an almost clear glow and a very thin white head that leaves a decent lace. Aroma of pure skunk at first, then shows a bit of malt, some metal and a touch of lemons. Light-bodied; Strong malty flavour at first then some nice lemons, clean malt and some very light sugars show some decency. Aftertaste has lemons, malt, sugar and some off metallic tastes. Overall, not so great, evident from the first smell onward. Decent to try, but hopefully it can only get better in Italy. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased at a small grocery store in Milan, Italy sampled later in the day on 11-November-2009 for €0,95 sampled in Milan, Italy.

On tap @ Bella Italia, Sønderborg. Pours clear pale golden with abundant andstable white head. Clear aroma of hops and grain. Bitter flavour of hop replaced by sweetish malty notes. Metallic finish, without which the beer would be quite decent. OK.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 No detectable aroma, no mentionable colour, but quite a surprisingly, refreshing dry, crisp and sweet taste. It MUST be taken cold.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, 66 cl. Clear golden, rich but rather quickly disappearing head. Sweet malty aroma, straw, faint grass. Papery flavor, cereals, sugary malts, straw, harsh hops. Technically perfect, extremely boring lager.
